THE BITE: An amuse-bouche of fashion news

Doutzen on-set and ready for her close-up. Story by Anne Pringle.

Holiday cheer
Pregnant Dutch supermodel (and current Flare cover star) Doutzen Kroes was just spotted in New York shooting an ad campaign. Even if she was showing already (it’s only been three months), it wouldn’t matter because she’s in a winter coat! The romantic ad is for Tiffany &Co.’s holiday campaign, shot by the legendary Peter Lindbergh. (Fashionista)

Tommy eyewear revamp
Tommy Hilfiger is about to release its first eyewear collection with Safilo Group. The brand previously collaborated on optical eyewear and sunglasses with Viva International, but they opted for a fresh start with a new company once their license expired. Tommy Hilfiger told WWD that the designs are “inspired by the preppy heritage of the brand with a modern, luxurious and sun spin.” (WWD)

Ugg’s new knits
Ugg Australia is on a roll: Last week we told you that they will collaborate with Jimmy Choo on a limited-edition boot, and now they have announced they will be launching a knitwear line. Collections for both men and women will be available this fall online at uggaustralia.com. Look for the cashmere-wool line in chunky hand-knit V-necks, cardigans, Italian merino wool sweater coats, and cable-knit sweaters with hoods lined with full grain shearling. (WWD)
